I was practicing reading with my 5 year old daughter Sanai while the Sunday Night Football was on, so I figured I would test her by reading a random sports tweet.

This infographic below takes a look at branding in the sense of business, but really, the concept of branding has a far greater reach than just the marketplace. These same concepts can be used for churches, ministries and nonprofit organizations.
Like it says at the beginning of this infographic, your online brand is like your storefront. Or in the case of a church, it’s the front door. Nonprofits, it’s your headquarters.
“A brand consists of the associations and emotions that people hold about your
companyorganization, productscause or servicemission.”
North Korea is a dismal nation. They boast about nuclear technology, but it’s a country-sized prison. In 1954, Korea was divided into two entities: North Korea and South Korea. The North was under the jurisdiction of the Soviet Union. They went to a communist system. The South followed free enterprise.
The results are stark. One country bustles. The other crumbles. One country manifests life. The other manifests death. Generally, free enterprise is related to Biblical principles. Generally, Communist leaders are dramatically hostile to Christ, the Word of God, and faith.
This is #EPIC.
As an audio/video production geek, I found this to BE SO FLIPPIN’ AWESOME!!!
The tech, production and teamwork behind every NFL game that airs on FOX Sports puts the game of football to shame. It’s far more complicated and involves so many more team players than the game that’s actually being aired!
I would love to sit in some of these…
Take a look:
While ChurchMag’s new logo design is currently in the hands of one of the most talented designers I know, I am currently trying to design a logo for Finding Justice with the help of Mark Robinson. Finding Justice has been generic and unbranded for almost a year now, but as it begins to pick-up steam, it’s time that it settled into an identity and have some banding applied to it.
In general, blogs should stay fairly generic until they get enough traction to warrant the time and attention for the branding process. I’ve been involved in several different ventures—both my own and others—and I have found this to be a good way to go about it.
So, as I kick around ideas and draw up some mock-ups, I found this infographic pretty enlightening. I think there’s a pattern, here, can you find it?
I know a lot of friends that tuned in to Doctor Who for the first time with the 50th Anniversary special and enjoyed what they saw. After thinking about ALL of the story arcs, callbacks to the first generation, and early second generation episodes, the numerous villains, and everything that is special with the doctors, their companions, and the friends made along the way, I wonder how much people actually got out of that episode.
To help with this, below are some images to help identify some of the MANY pieces that is part of Doctor Who along with tons of quotes to bring a smile to your face.
As a sound designer myself, I’ve always found the “behind the scenes” look at sound effects to be particularly fascinating—especially when it comes to Sci-Fi.
From Jurassic Park’s dinosaur sounds or the sounds behind the last Tron movie, I’m a sucker for this stuff. So you can imagine how excited I was for the opportunity to learn how they came about creating the Star Wars Lightsaber sounds.
Check. This. Out:
After reading this comic by DOGHOUSEDIARIES, I have become really insecure with my email signatures. Not just my personal email, but my business emails, too.
What does your email signature look like?
I would like to say, however, that I am no longer the guy who lists every blog and social media network that he can be found on the entire Internet. And when I say, “no longer,” I mean a few years ago, so I didn’t’ just change it or anything—LOL!
Check out these seven uses of the email signature:
It’s a classic debate.
PC or Mac?
A few years ago I was a Windows user. There were several reasons why I refrained from jumping over, but then finally it happened.
Now I know what all those people meant when they would say they would never switch back. PC vs Mac, it’s a classic debate:
Did you hear about the 8-year old who drove his parents car?
He had watch his parents drive for a few years and knew just what to do. He grabbed the keys from the key hook by the front door and walked to the family minivan. Following all the usual safety measures he had watched his parents follow, he was careful to properly adjust his seat, mirrors and buckle his seatbelt.
The little boy started the car, placed it in gear, and slowly pulled out into the road. It was easy! Just like his parents, he came to a complete stop at stop signs, always double-checked for oncoming traffic and always proceeded with caution.
